"J M Maury" is John Minor Maury, a nephew of Commodore Matthew Fontaine Maury and 1st cousin to Major General Dabney Herndon Maury, & Major Richard Launcelot Maury; a kinsman to Capt. William Lewis Herndon of the famous Exploration of the Amazon and later the Captain of the ill-fated SS Central America not long ago found and declared America's richest shipwreck. (See book "Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea".) Captain William Lewis Herndon's daughter, Ellen, was married to General Chester A. Arthur who later became USA President. They had three children.

The correct title from the work is simply "Darien Exploring Expedition". However, there were several explorations to that area that, in part, carry that same or a similar title. The "correct" title can be easily viewed online. The present title is specific to name of area and the date the expedition took place. This expedition is typically left out of history. It is, to a great extent, forgotten history due to larger expeditions. Therefore, the title, as is, is much easier to find as a "new" work from an old title. Therefore the history within is much easier to find, learn about, and enjoy reading. Finally, this is an illustrated work which brings even more pleasure in reading this work.
Subject: Incorrect title
The correct title should be: Darien Exploring Expedition
